Almond Flour Pancakes vs Almond Flour Crepes

There is some confusion between crepes and pancakes, so let me help you understand the difference between them.

First, the texture of a crepe recipe batter is always thinner and more liquid than pancakes. It is because you want crepes to be larger, thin, and crispy.

Secondly, crepes can be eaten with savory or sweet fillings, while pancakes are mostly eaten sweet.

Finally, crepes are originally from France, while pancakes were eaten first by Roman and Greek.

So if you like thick crepes, use my almond flour pancake recipe. But otherwise, keep reading for a tasty, thin almond flour crepe.

Almond Flour Crepes rolled and stuffed with cream and blueberries, sprinkled with almond slices.

Almond Flour Crepe Filling

There are many ways to appreciate those almond flour crepes. You can either add a sweet filling or a savory filling.

The best low-carb sweet crepes fillings are:

  • Sugar-free crystal sweetener – the easiest and most delicious crepe is filled with sugar-free crystal sweetener. I recommend a Monk fruit crystal sweetener and a dash of cinnamon or lemon juice.
  • Whipped coconut cream and berries or regular whipped cream.
  • Sugar-free maple syrup – I use Monk fruit syrup as it has no carbs, no sugar, and it is natural.
  • Sugar-free hazelnut spread– my chocolate hazelnut spread recipe is 100% sugar-free and keto-friendly. It is absolutely amazing in these crepes for breakfast.
  • Homemade peanut butter
  • Yogurt, berries, a drizzle of nut butter, and sliced almonds – If you don’t eat dairy, use dairy-free coconut yogurt. You can also use greek yogurt if you can eat dairy.
  • Sugar-free chia seed jam

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, ground almond, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and sugar-free crystal sweetener of your choice. Whisk until all the ingredients are perfectly combined and no lumps form. Set aside.
  • Warm a 9-inch crepe pan under medium heat, and use absorbent paper to rub the coconut oil on the pan and grease the pan.
  • Scoop the crepe batter into the frying pan and tilt the pan in a circular motion to ensure that the batter coats the surface evenly. The thickness of the crepes will depend on how much batter you use for each. Usually, 1/4 cup is what you need to make a 9-inch crepe.
  • Cook the crepe until the sides start to crisp up and lift off easily from the frying pan. It should take about 2 minutes each, over medium heat.
  • Loosen with a spatula and flip over to cook the other side. Both sides should be lightly brown, and the crepes should be crispy on the sides and softer in the middle.
  • Repeat for the next crepes.
  • To serve, fill each crepe with the whipped coconut cream, fold in a triangle, and top with the fruits of your choice fresh berries, spicy plum jam, etc.

Notes

Storage: Unfilled crepes can be stored in a fridge on a plate. Cover the plate with plastic wrap to prevent the crepes from drying out. They can be stored for up to 3 days. Then, rewarm on a crepe pan and fill with the filling of your choice.
Low-carb sweet filling ideas: whipped coconut cream sweetened with stevia, berries, sugar-free jam, yogurt, sugar-free melted chocolate, desiccated coconut, unsweetened cocoa powder, nut butter (almond, cashew, peanut), seed butter, or even coconut butter.
Savory filling: these crepes make a delicious, savory meal as well. Don’t add the vanilla and cinnamon to the batter. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt instead.  After you cook the almond flour crepes, bring them back to the pan, add a handful of grated cheese, some ham/bacon, and grilled vegetables, fold the crepes in half, and return to eat in the pan for a few minutes until the cheese is melted. My favorite combos are cheddar + bacon + fried onion or cream cheese, spinach, and ham.

    122 Thoughts On Almond Flour Crepes (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free)
    1 2 3 4
  1. Hi there! I haven’t tried this yet, but cannot wait to. My question is: how do these warm up? I do a lot of meal prepping, so if I made several for savory and a few for sweet would they microwave well for the fillings?

    • Of course, they microwave really well! For sweet microwave for 30 seconds and spread what you love inside like peanut butter, sugar free jam, roll and enjoy. For the savory ones you can add ham pieces, grated cheese, fold or roll and microwave until cheese melt. They are perfect for busy mornings and store 3-4 days in the fridge on a plate, sealed with wrap. Enjoy ! XOXO Carine.

    • yes sure! but don’t over beat the batter or it will add air. Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  2. 5 stars
    Man these hit the spot!!! Easy and delicious! Us low-carbers are always looking for a vehicle for yummy fixings and this is it! I’ll make savory versions in the future for sure.
    I topped mine with my homemade pecan butter and it was sooo good! (2 cups pecans, cinnamon and maple extract)
    On Cronometer the net carb count for these was even lower than stated so that’s a bonus too!
    Thank you again and I look forward to checking out the rest of your blog.

    • OMG! your pecan butter recipe sounds amazing! I will definitely try to make some for my next crepes. Thanks for sharing and thank you for the lovely feedback on those crepes. I love living a low carb lifestyle and enjoy some treat so here you will find lots of them 🙂 Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    Tried the crepes this morning with a quarter tsp of salt so that I would have them with savory fillings. Perfect!
    Filling, going with the french theme – french onions and cheese.
    Thanks for the recipe – mynew go to for weekend brunch.

  4. 5 stars
    The recipe works and make crepes! They are true to the description and not sweet, a little bland, and eggy. But, they were a great canvas for other toppings and best of all, they were gluten-free!

  5. 5 stars
    Made the french crepe and the almond flour crepe on Saturday to compare. Loved them both! The almond flour crepe has a little egg flavor but does make a great savory palette for eggs, avocado, cheeses and meats like bacon or pulled pork. It seems that the main difference between the almond crepe and the original french crepe is the addition of milk as both recipes have four eggs. Do you have a recipe for or how would you add almond milk to the almond flour recipe to more closely mimic the flavor of the french crepe? How much almond flour to how much almond milk?

    • Thank you so much for trying 2 recipes from my blog that makes me so happy! The almond flour crepes recipe intend to be low carb that is why it is a bit more egg in texture, less low carb flour so I totally agree with you with the savory filling. My tips to use the almond flour as a sweet base is to add natural sweetener in the batter like stevia, erythritol or coconut sugar if you are not on a sugar free diet. Others great sugar free healthy spices that boost their sweet flavor are ground cinnamon and more vanilla. You can definitely use vanilla almond milk too in this recipe. Finally I recommend to try the coconut flour crepes or buckwheat crepes recipe on the blog. Those two are also amazing if you are a crepe lover like me. Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

      • Thank you! I’m glad I read the comments. I saw you recommended Monk fruit sweetener, but then didn’t see where it was added to the batter! This might explain why people were saying it was bland. I’m trying it now!

    • I am sorry to hear that. Are you on a low carb diet ? If not, that is probably why you did nt appreciate it very much. This recipe use lots of eggs and few almond flour as it intend to be low carb/keto friendly. As any low carb baking recipes, the texture is different to normal wheat base baking. If you want a real french crepe recipe try my authentic Paris crepes recipe, not low carb but you find all the texture you are looking for. Enjoy the blog recipes, XOXO Carine

    I think your crepe has even less carb than what you calculated. The only source of carb is the almond meal, and it only has 5 grams.

    so if you make 4 servings out of that, then you’d end up with 1.25 g of carbs.

    • That is probably true! I only post the nutrition value as indicative numbers, then I always recommend everyone to enter the exact brands of each ingredients they use in their own nutrition tracker. It can vary a lot from brand to brand. Thanks for the lovely input ! Enjoy the crepes and all the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    Just made a savory version of these crepes – turned out great! Me and my husband really enjoyed them with some smoked salmon, capers an cream cheese. Thank you for the recipe 🙂

    • That sounds delicious ! Thanks so much for sharing this and trying my recipes. Enjoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine.

    I have been after a good low carb crepe recipe ever since I started keto and this one is perfect! I made these this morning. I did two savory & two sweet. My savory ones were a mozzarella cheese, sautéed tomato and onion filling & my sweet ones were a keto strawberry jam with melted drizzled chocolate over them & also topped them with my homemade whipped cream! Delicious! Love this recipe!

  9. I have a low carb pancake recipe I love that calls for cottage cheese. It calls for eggs but I use egg beaters to reduce the cholesterol. Any idea how these would turn out with egg beaters? Essentially egg white only?

    • I guess it should work pretty well as soon as you use as much egg beaters as the volume of eggs recommended in this crepe recipe (to keep the ratio right)! Let me know if you give this a go. Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.

  10. 5 stars
    This recipe is legit! I didn’t have any almond flour on hand, so I substituted about 1.5 tbsp of coconut flour (I started with 1 tbsp and played around with the .5 until it seemed like a good crepe consistency) and it was delish!!!

    • Thank you for the lovely feedback. I am very happy to read that this simpl almond flour crepe recipe works with some coconut flour too! Thanks again for trying my recipes and taking a minte to share such a beautiful experience. XOXO Carine.

  11. Don’t mean to be negative but these are very eggy. Saying that these are close in taste to an authentic French crepe feels like false advertising. The texture does feel similar but it very much tastes like a bland omelette. Which is fine, but not disappointing when one is looking forward to something that tastes remotely like a crepe. Thank you for sharing your recipe, but I would encourage you to remove any text stating that it tastes like a crepe.

    • As I replied to you personally this morning, this recipe has been developed to provide a tasty low carb and keto crepe option to people who can’t eat carbs or white flour. That is the closest to French crepes you can make on keto diet and that is the purpose of this recipe. My blog provides mostly recipe for low carb diet so yes it taste slightly different to regular recipe, and if you want the more conventional recipe I also have it on the blog. Look at the real French crepes recipe, the one mum teach me as a kid. Enjoy the blog recipes XOXO Carine.

    p.s. je viens de trouver ta recette pour les crêpes français aussi et j’ai hate de l’essayer. D’habitude je mets un oeuf de moins que la recette, et je n’ai mis jamais du sucre ou vanille dans les miennes. Si le mari l’aime, ce sera ma go-to recette!

  13. 4 stars
    Catering to my French husband, I generally make my regular crepes quite thin yet still rich, 2 parts water, 1 part milk. I liked this recipe in the sense that it had a certain richness to it with the almond flour, along with that savory nuttiness, but the crepes were too thick for my taste. I almost felt like I was eating a pancake. Do you have any tips or ideas to make them a bit thinner? Merci 😉

    • This is a low carb crepe recipe. It doesn’t intend to be or taste like a french crepe at 100%. It is an alternative for diabetic or people eating low carb/keto diet and can’t have wheat flour. If you like thinner crepes, you can simply add a bit more milk in this recipe and spread this thinner on the pan. Enjoy the blog. Carine.

    My son is new to the low carb world. We have been trying to find a pancake recipe he likes. Well I like crepes so I through this out there. Made these tonight minus the cinnamon. Filled with homemade peach jam and some sweetened cream cheese.

    My kid ate 3. He proclaimed they taste like ones made with regular flour.

    I now have a new crepe recipe! Thank you!!!

    • That is the BEST comment ever! I am a mum too so it makes me so happy when I read that others kids than mne enjoy my low carb treats ! Trust me all the recipe on my blog has been tested by my 2 picky eaters so you are in the best place if you are looking for family friendly low carb recipes ! Enjoy the blog and crepes! XOXO Carine.

    • Thanks for this lovely comment! I am so happy you loved the crepes 🙂 Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  15. Hi Carine,
    Major almond flour crepes and I’m wondering or they seem to work out well I’m wondering how do you get past the egg flavor in it there something you can add that will remove the eggy taste to it? Never had a crate before I actually thought they were more close to like a Swedish pancake which is crepe like but maybe the egg is something that it’s supposed to taste like I don’t know I just know that I have to be low carb and low sodium so I was hoping this would taste as good as they sounded but to me it seems like they are like a french toast minus the bread. Thanks in advance, Carrie

    • Hi Carrie! If you are looking for a crepes/pancakes recipes that is low carb and doesn’t taste too eggy try my coconut flour flatbread. Those are 100% egg free, low carb and low sodium. They are soft and delicious with any sweet or savory filling. You can roll them thin or thicker like a pancake if you prefer. Recipe is HERE. Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.
